    Without experience with them, but lots of word of mouth...
    US Amps
    Zapco
    McIntosh
    TRU
    Brax
    I know I forgot alot too.

    Invest in high quality speakers before a "high end" amp like these though. Speakers vary MUCH more in quality. Most ears wont be able to tell a difference in these from mid-end amps with the same power, especially in the car environment.

    OMG, this was done like a week ago!!!, go to page 2, and see a best amps page. And search for even more!!!

    At a point its just personal preferance. And its also really hard to see what amp is the best, as not too many people change amps in exactly the same setup to see which is cleaner, or better. Its a lots more important to have a good install and good speakers.

    Just to clarify, I shouldnt have said amps dont vary much in quality. I meant to say htey dont vary much is sound quality. Build quality and reliability is something they do vary greatly in, a nicer amp will usually last alot longer and be less prone to problems, that is the only reason I see to buying a high end amp.

    These are truely some of the best amplifiers in the world
    So what makes them the "best amplifiers in the world?"

    They've sure got a high pricetag, but that shouldn't really influence your opinion, should it? I could sell a rebadged Pyle for $10,000, but in the end it'd just be a Pyle.

    Do you happen to have reliability specs on them? A dealer in town was going to start selling Sinfoni but when he went to hook up an amp and test it the amp blew up. Apparently all of their amps are made by hand, and in the process one of the transformers, or something similar, was put in backwards.

    Maybe you think they sound better than others? Mr. Clarke would disagree with you and he has put up $10,000 to prove his point.
    ( http://www.talkaudio.co.uk/vbb/showt...threadid=18815)

    They may very well have good customer service, but I haven't, and I sincerely doubt that you have, ever dealt with those company's in that capacity.

    To be fair, I do own a zapco, and I think it's perfectly fine to spend a little more on an amp, but you should be realistic about what you're getting.
